Now,middle-income trap, and stop catching up to rich nationswhen per capita income reaches about $5000 to $15000 (in current dollars) The examples (BrazilMexicoMalaysia) are numerous What is less known is that even those rare economies that broke through the middle-class trap started to decelerate still catching upbut more slowly after reaching a per capita income of around $5000 (in current dollars) Japan in the 1970sTaiwan in the 1980s and South Korea in the 1990s all slowed from a growth rate of about 9 per cent to around 5 per centsimply because the bigger the economythe harder it becomes to grow fast China passed the $5000 per capita income level last yearand is now showing the same signs of deceleration that JapanTaiwan and South Korea exhibited at that level: rising labour demands for higher wages and a decreasing demand for new investments Chinas growth model is similar to Japans in the 1970sand the most likely scenario is that China will follow the path of Japan in that decadewhen its growth rate slowed to 5 per cent China will continue to catch up to the USbut its growth will slow to a pace of around 6-7 per cent over the next 5 to 10 years At that pointChinas economy will be even largerand may decelerate again This process is under wayand it signals a basic power shift in the global economy China became the biggest contributor to global GDP growth in 2007and it has held the lead ever since But if the US continues to grow at its current pace of about 25 per centand China slows to 65 per centthen the US will regain the lead this year contributing 23 per cent of global growth in 2012compared to 18 per cent for China and it will hold that lead at least through 2015according to Morgan Stanley research Investors who have bet big on near double-digit growth in China will be troubled by this slowdown and will start looking for a safer destination With Europe and Japan both growing at less than 2 per centthe focus of global attention will shift to the improving competitive position of the USand capital flows will follow Chinas slowdown is setting the stage for a drop in the price of oilwhich has had a crippling effect on growth in the US In recent yearsChina has accounted for nearly half of global growth in oil demandand every 1 per cent of GDP growth in China added 10 to 30 per cent to the price of oil Chinas slowdown is also opening the door to a revival in American manufacturing China is suffering many symptoms typical of a maturing miracle economyfrom a strengthening currency to rising wagesland prices and transport costswhile the US has a weak currencystagnant wages and a moribund property market The dollar is near record lows (in inflation-adjusted terms) against many of its trading partnersincluding China The long-term decline in the US share of global manufacturing exports bottomed out in 2008 at 8 per centbut has since been inching higher The Boston Consulting Group predicts that by 2015China will have lost most of its cost advantagesaccelerating the reshoring that is already bringing some factory jobs back home from China These shifts will reshape the global balance of economic powermostly for the better A collapse in China to zero per cent growth would be disastrous for the world economybut it is unlikelyin large part because Chinese leaders understand that the current slowdown is inevitable They are lowering growth targets and trying to manage rather than fight the deceleration (which would only make it worse) At the near double-digit growth rate of the last 15 yearsChina was the equivalent of a company with disruptive technology destroying competitorslifting supplierssucking in capitalstealing jobs and moving so fast that rivals couldnt keep up A smooth downshift to 6 or 7 per cent makes

is identified with a totteringcorrupt and incompetent old order India has witnessed an unprecedented set of elections We can torture the statistics till they confesswe can be ingenious in our interpretationsbut it would be churlish to deny some broad trends The first is the triumph of democracy In response to worries about institutions and cynicism about politicsIndian democracy widened participation and emerged stronger This is also a riposte to all those who have exaggerated fears about authoritarianism running triumphant over India; unmeaning phrases like emerging middle-class fascism were being dropped far too freely to do justice to Indian democracy Does this look like a country that will easily give up democracy Despite occasional ups and downsin the endthis is a democracy that will make everyone dance to its tune rather than be railroaded by anyone But the great churning is now producing stunning new possibilities There is no question that an anti-Congress wave is gathering momentum The Congress is identified with a totteringcorrupt and incompetent old order Incumbent Congress governments not just lostbut lost heavily It bears reminding Sheila Dikshit and Ashok Gehlot are not disastrous performers in comparative terms There is something new emerging in how voters judge governance that is hard to describe in simple terms One element of a post-identity formula was to concentrate on delivering a few schemes well This is what many successful chief ministers had done wellDikshit and Gehlot included But there is also something more ineffable required: the projection of overall being-in-charge and general trustworthinessand the ability to respond to crises There is a trigger that is a tipping point in that loss of credibility Looking backall the chief ministers who lost will identify such momentswheredespite the good they didthey projected a loss of control No amount of schemes can overcome the overall loss of credibility The Aam Aadmi Partys absolutely spectacular political debut is a reminder that Indias progressive moment is ripe for being seized through political creativity and imagination There will be new experiments with ideaspeople and organisational forms There is now a search for a new politics at many different levels There is the search for a post-identity politicswhich the AAP exemplified Not only was its vote share spectacularits cross class and caste basis was also impressive In a paradoxical turnthe party that was accused of being anti-politics has rejuvenated politics to a degree no one could have imagined It has reminded us that there is nothing deterministic about politics It is the traditional conception of politicswith its encrusted commitment to identity and venal interestthat was the real anti-politics Arvind Kejriwals decision to contest against Dikshit also demonstrated that politics is all about taking risks The contrast with Rahul Gandhi could not be starker It is the risk-averseness of the Congress that makes it look like a fossil; it cannot get rid of its dead weight The AAPs biggest success has already been to change the tenor of politics Its presence will force new conversations Can it make a bigger mark at the national stage At one levelit is already forcing others to change their game But the possibility of a bigger role for the AAP should not be discounted In Delhithe AAP did not just devour the Congress voteit also consolidated the floating vote Even in a state like Rajasthanthis is more than 25 per cent of the electorateand if it finds a focal pointit will consolidate But its growing success will delegitimise the Congress more than the BJP But the subtle signs of deeper change are apparent elsewhere The scale of the BJPs victories in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are not explicable in terms of the traditional calculus of caste politics This horse is bolting the door Although the AAP is a harbinger of revolutionary changein the immediate political contextthe Rajasthan result holds more lessons for the Congress If you went by traditional calculationsGehlot should have put up a better fight Here is a leader with a strong social base He used a windfall fiscal gain to distribute free medicines and create pension schemes He worked assiduously on Centrally sponsored schemes like the Indira Awaas Yojana He had an opponentVasundhara Rajewho had no locus standi on corruption and was considered missing in action till six months ago Why could he not repeat what Shivraj Singh Chouhan did There is a rather sterile debate over the strength of the Narendra Modi factor in these elections The short answer is: there was a considerable effectexcept in places where there was another forceful rival like the AAP in place But this may be good news for Modi In this era of changethe forces that will be able to stop Modi will have to position themselves as agents of radical change; it will not be enough to be a regional force Many of the traditional regional formations are not looking like change agents An ideal electoral strategy depends on a synergy between the local and the national In the BJPs case these havefor the most partworked in harmony The BJP can claim it has both a plausible national leader who is creating legitimacy for himselfand some competent chief ministers When they work togetherit will be reflected in the scale of victory The Congress is heading in the opposite direction It was open talk in the Rajasthan Congress that Gandhi was not just not helpinghe was an actual liabilityreminding people of the Centres faults The Congress is simply failing to grasp how India is changing The macroeconomic trainwreck whose most visible manifestation is sustained inflation is now taking a toll If the burgeoning genre of Rahul Gandhi jokes is any guidethe open contempt for the Congresss central leadership is now a palpable political fact The most morbid Congress joke heard today was that the only state where the party put up a fight was where it experienced a tragic purge: Chhattisgarh But it shows how the Congress is identified with the old The Congress willno doubttake recourse to the historical precedent of 2003when the BJP won three state elections and lost the national election But the correct precedent it should heed is this In most elections since 2004once there is a sentiment against an incumbent governmentthere is a period of uncertainty Then there is a little extra surge towards the party most likely to provide an alternative The Congress itself was a beneficiary of this trend The tide is turningand the anti-Congress momentum may be even stronger The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhiand a contributing editor for ‘The

when tweets purportedly from Sony Music Entertainment said “RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016” and “Britney spears is dead by accident We will tell you more soon #RIPBritney” The real Sony Music Entertainment quickly deleted those tweets and issued a terse clarification: “Sony Music Entertainment’s Twitter account was compromised This has been rectified” it said “Sony Music apologizes to Britney Spears and her fans for any confusion” Spears’s manager Adam Leber told CNN that Britney is fine and well She had posted photos yesterday of her children in camouflage gear during an outdoors excursion “There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death” Leber said “but never from the official Sony Music Twitter account” In 2001 a Texas radio station reported that Spears and then-boyfriend Justin Timberlake had died in a car crash Two on-air personalities were later fired for repeating bogus Internet reports In addition to Sony’s Twitter account the official account of Bob Dylan may have been hacked today: It tweeted: “Rest in peace @britneyspears” about the same time as the fake Sony tweets were going out While the origin of the erroneous tweets was not certain the hacker group OurMine was a prime suspect One tweet from Dylan’s account included the OurMine hashtag The group has hacked the accounts of other

Buzzfeed News reported in October that OurMine is a Saudi teenager who goes by the name “Ahmad Makki” on social media OurMine however said Makki was simply a fan But Buzzfeed’s website was then compromised and several posts were altered to read “Hacked by OurMine” The latest episode was reminiscent of the massive cyber attack against Sony in November 2014 A hacking group known as GOP had
